Meditation Essentials

Sydney, New South Wales

Billabong Retreat, a wellness sanctuary on the outskirts of Sydney, is the perfect place to make time for stillness and meditation.

Meditation is both an ancient art and a modern science that can help us calm the mind, improve focus and reduce stress.

This weekend or midweek retreat includes twice daily yoga flow classes (also known as moving meditation), evening sitting meditations plus special workshops each day that will help you explore the types of meditation, its history and lots of tips about how to make meditation easy and establish a regular beneficial practice.

The Meditation Essentials program is suitable for beginners and those who want a refresher and there is plenty of free time to explore the property on foot and to enjoy a pampering treatment at the onsite day spa.

Be nourished by delicious organic meals with whole food ingredients sourced from local producers and choose from a range of accommodation options including cottages, treehouses and luxury cabins.

This retreat is designed to help you find more peace and contentment with learnings that will last a lifetime.
